Class Leading Standard Definition Handheld Camcorder
The DSR-PD175P is simply the best standard definition handheld camcorder ever produced by Sony. It uses the same chassis as the state-of-the-art HVR-Z5E HDV Camcorder introduced in 2008 with many of the same advanced features, including the all-new high performance Sony G-Lens which combines a ClearVid array and advanced Exmor image-processing technology for class leading picture quality and low light performance.

The weight distribution and control layout of this chassis has set new ergonomic standards for handheld operation, while operational flexibility is further enhanced by support for the HVR-MRC1K Compact Flash Solid State recorder. In every respect, the DSR-PD175P is a natural successor to the legendary DSR-PD170P Camcorder for customers who need the highest performance and latest technology but don't currently have a requirement for High Definition.

DVCAM is the global standard for professional Standard Definition acquisition introduced by Sony as a higher performance, more reliable version of consumer DV while retaining full compatibility. Its advantages are further extended by a comprehensive product range, including Master Series VTRs tailored to broadcast requirements. Typical DVCAM applications range from wedding videography to corporate video and broadcast television. It is the ultimate ubiquitous digital broadcast and professional tape format.
